Bivariate data


Coefficient of Determination


One-way Analysis of Variance (ANOVA)

bivariate data
Bivariate Data
  • Bivariate data are just what they sound like – data with measurements on two variables; let’s call them X and Y
  • Here, we will look at two continuous variables
  • Want to explore the relationship between the two variables
  • Example: Fasting blood glucose and ventricular shortening velocity
  • We can graphically summarize a bivariate data set with a scatterplot (also sometimes called a scatter diagram)
  • Plots values of one variable on the horizontal axis and values of the other on the vertical axis
  • Can be used to see how values of 2 variables tend to move with each other (i.e. how the variables are associated)
numerical summary
Numerical Summary
  • Typically, a bivariate data set is summarized numerically with 5 summary statistics
  • These provide a fair summary for scatterplots with the same general shape as we just saw, like an oval or an ellipse
  • We can summarize each variable separately : X mean, X SD; Y mean, Y SD
  • But these numbers don’t tell us how the values of X and Y vary together
pearson s correlation coefficient r
Pearson’s Correlation Coefficient “r”
  • “r” indicates…
    • strength of relationship (strong, weak, or none)
    • direction of relationship
      • positive (direct) – variables move in same direction
      • negative (inverse) – variables move in opposite directions
  • r ranges in value from –1.0 to +1.0

-1.0 0.0 +1.0

Strong Negative No Rel. Strong Positive

correlation cont
Correlation (cont)

Correlation is the relationship between two variables.

what r is
What r is...
  • r is a measure of LINEAR ASSOCIATION
  • The closer r is to –1 or 1, the more tightly the points on the scatterplot are clustered around a line
  • The sign of r (+ or -) is the same as the sign of the slope of the line
  • When r = 0, the points are not LINEARLY ASSOCIATED– this does NOT mean there is NO ASSOCIATION
and what r is not
...and what r is not
  • r is a measure of LINEAR ASSOCIATION
  • r does NOT tell us if Y is a function of X
  • r does NOT tell us if XcausesY
  • r does NOT tell us if YcausesX
  • r does NOT tell us what the scatterplot looks like
correlation is not causation
Correlation is NOT causation
  • You cannot infer that since X and Y are highly correlated (r close to –1 or 1) that X is causing a change in Y
  • Y could be causing X
  • X and Y could both be varying along with a third, possibly unknown factor (either causal or not)
reading correlation matrix
Reading Correlation Matrix

r = -.904

p = .013 -- Probability of getting a correlation this size by sheer chance. Reject Ho if p ≤ .05.

sample size

r (4) = -.904, p.05

interpretation of correlation
Interpretation of Correlation


  • from 0 to 0.25 (-0.25) = little or no relationship;
  • from 0.25 to 0.50 (-0.25 to 0.50) = fair degree of relationship;
  • from 0.50 to 0.75 (-0.50 to -0.75) = moderate to good relationship;
  • greater than 0.75 (or -0.75) = very good to excellent relationship.
limitations of correlation
Limitations of Correlation
  • linearity:
    • can’t describe non-linear relationships
    • e.g., relation between anxiety & performance
  • truncation of range:
    • underestimate stength of relationship if you can’t see full range of x value
  • no proof of causation
    • third variable problem:
      • could be 3rd variable causing change in both variables
      • directionality: can’t be sure which way causality “flows”
coefficient of determination r 2
Coefficient of Determination r2
  • The square of the correlation,r2, is the proportion of variation in the values of y that is explained by the regression model with x.
  • Amount of variance accounted for in y by x
  • Percentage increase in accuracy you gain by using the regression line to make predictions
  • 0  r2 1.
  • The larger r2 , the stronger the linear relationship.
  • The closer r2 is to 1, the more confident we are in our prediction.
linear regression
Linear Regression
  • Correlation measures the direction and strength of the linear relationship between two quantitative variables
  • A regression line
    • summarizes the relationship between two variables if the form of the relationship is linear.
    • describes how a response variable y changes as an explanatory variable x changes.
    • is often used as a mathematical model to predict the value of a response variable y based on a value of an explanatory variable x.
simple linear regression
(Simple) Linear Regression
  • Refers to drawing a (particular, special) line through a scatterplot
  • Used for 2 broad purposes:
    • Estimation
    • Prediction
formula for linear regression
Formula for Linear Regression

Slope or the change in y for every unit change in x

Y-intercept or the value of y when x = 0.

y = bx + a

Y variable plotted on vertical axis.

X variable plotted on horizontal axis.

interpretation of parameters
Interpretation of parameters
  • The regression slope is the average change in Y when X increases by 1 unit
  • The intercept is the predicted value for Y when X = 0
  • If the slope = 0, then X does not help in predicting Y (linearly)
which line
Which line?
  • There are many possible lines that could be drawn through the cloud of points in the scatterplot:
least squares
Least Squares
  • Q: Where does this equation come from?

A: It is the line that is ‘best’ in the sense that it minimizes the sum of the squared errors in the vertical (Y) direction









linear regression33

U.K. monthly return is y variable

Linear Regression

U.S. monthly return is x variable

Question: What is the relationship between U.K. and U.S. stock returns?

linear regression35
Linear Regression

A regression creates a model of the relationship between x and y.

It fits a line to the scatter plot by minimizing the distance between y and the line or

If the correlation is significant then

create a regression analysis.

linear regression36
Linear Regression

The slope is calculated as:

Tells you the change in the dependent variable for every unit change in the independent variable.


The coefficient of determination or R-square measures the variation explained by the best-fit line as a percent of the total variation:

regression equation
Regression Equation
  • y’= bx + a
    • y’ = predicted value of y
    • b = slope of the line
    • x = value of x that you plug-in
    • a = y-intercept (where line crosses y access)
  • In this case….
    • y’ = -4.263(x) + 125.401
  • So if the distance is 20 feet
    • y’ = -4.263(20) + 125.401
    • y’ = -85.26 + 125.401
    • y’ = 40.141
spss regression set up

  • “Criterion,”
  • y-axis variable,
  • what you’re trying to predict
  • “Predictor,”
  • x-axis variable,
  • what you’re basing the prediction on

  • Interpolation: Using a model to estimate Y for an X value within the range on which the model was based.
  • Extrapolation: Estimating based on an X value outside the range.
  • Interpolation Good, Extrapolation Bad.

conditions for regression
Conditions for regression
  • “Straight enough” condition (linearity)
  • Errors are mostly independent of X
  • Errors are mostly independent of anything else you can think of
  • Errors are more-or-less normally distributed
general anova setting comparisons of 2 or more means
General ANOVA SettingComparisons of 2 or more means
  • Investigator controls one or more independent variables
    • Called factors (or treatment variables)
    • Each factor contains two or more levels (or groups or categories/classifications)
  • Observe effects on the dependent variable
    • Response to levels of independent variable
  • Experimental design: the plan used to collect the data
logic of anova
Logic of ANOVA
  • Each observation is different from the Grand (total sample) Mean by some amount
  • There are two sources of variance from the mean:
    • 1) That due to the treatment or independent variable
    • 2) That which is unexplained by our treatment
one way analysis of variance
One-Way Analysis of Variance
  • Evaluate the difference among the means of two or more groups

Examples: Accident rates for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd shift

Expected mileage for five brands of tires

  • Assumptions
    • Populations are normally distributed
    • Populations have equal variances
    • Samples are randomly and independently drawn
hypotheses of one way anova
Hypotheses of One-Way ANOVA
  • All population means are equal
  • i.e., no treatment effect (no variation in means among groups)
  • At least one population mean is different
  • i.e., there is a treatment effect
  • Does not mean that all population means are different (some pairs may be the same)
one factor anova
One-Factor ANOVA

All Means are the same:

The Null Hypothesis is True

(No Treatment Effect)

one factor anova53
One-Factor ANOVA


At least one mean is different:

The Null Hypothesis is NOT true

(Treatment Effect is present)


partitioning the variation
Partitioning the Variation
  • Total variation can be split into two parts:


SST = Total Sum of Squares

(Total variation)

SSA = Sum of Squares Among Groups

(Among-group variation)

SSW = Sum of Squares Within Groups

(Within-group variation)

partitioning the variation55
Partitioning the Variation



Total Variation = the aggregate dispersion of the individual data values across the various factor levels (SST)

Among-Group Variation = dispersion between the factor sample means (SSA)

Within-Group Variation = dispersion that exists among the data values within a particular factor level (SSW)

partition of total variation
Commonly referred to as:

Sum of Squares Within

Sum of Squares Error

Sum of Squares Unexplained

Within-Group Variation

Partition of Total Variation

Total Variation (SST)

d.f. = n – 1

Variation Due to Factor (SSA)

Variation Due to Random Sampling (SSW)



d.f. = c – 1

d.f. = n – c

Commonly referred to as:

  • Sum of Squares Between
  • Sum of Squares Among
  • Sum of Squares Explained
  • Among Groups Variation

Total Sum of Squares


  • Where:
  • SST = Total sum of squares
  • c = number of groups (levels or treatments)
  • nj = number of observations in group j
  • Xij = ith observation from group j
  • X = grand mean (mean of all data values)

  • Where:
  • SSW = Sum of squares within groups
  • c = number of groups
  • nj = sample size from group j
  • Xj = sample mean from group j
  • Xij = ith observation in group j

interpreting one way anova f statistic
Interpreting One-Way ANOVA F Statistic
  • The F statistic is the ratio of the among estimate of variance and the within estimate of variance
    • The ratio must always be positive
    • df1 = c -1 will typically be small
    • df2 = n - c will typically be large

Decision Rule:

  • Reject H0 if F > FU, otherwise do not reject H0

anova summary
ANOVA (summary)
  • Null hypothesis is that there is no difference between the means.
  • Alternate hypothesis is that at least two means differ.
  • Use the F statistic as your test statistic. It tests the between-sample variance (difference between the means) against the within-sample variance (variability within the sample). The larger this is the more likely the means are different.
  • Degrees of freedom for numerator is k-1 (k is the number of treatments)
  • Degrees of freedom for the denominator is n-k (n is the number of responses)
  • If test F is larger than critical F, then reject the null.
  • If p-value is less than alpha, then reject the null.
anova summary75
ANOVA (summary)


  • All k population probability distributions are normal.
  • The k population variances are equal.
  • The samples from each population are random and independent.


For an one-way ANOVA after you have rejected the null, you may want to determine which treatment yielded the best results.

Must do follow-on analysis to determine if the difference between each pair of means if significant.
